Years ago I heard the term, "barriers to employment" and realized that many of those barriers were present in my life. I was fortunate enough to receive lots of support to get beyond those issues. Now it's my brother's turn.

Some of his barriers include not having a GED, lack of transportation, lack of sufficient means of communication (no computer or other internet device, just a prepaid cell), age, health... I do my best to support him however I can, but it's not enough. I don't know how he will avoid becoming homeless in the next few weeks, as the weather gets colder.

How I wish he had better barriers against the storms of life...
